    Rotary Seal Ideas

    You may want to look into some motorcycle suspension seals. There are some internal seals that are made for small aluminum shafts, that have to hold high pressure fluid on both sides. Although they aren't really designed for a rotary use, they are very cheap and easy to get. Might be worth a try.

    Force on cam gear bolts

    The gear is on a centered dowel, then bolted to the cam. I am talking about sheer strength, not bolt torque. I want to figure out how much load is on the cam bolts from the crank via chain and valve spring back pressure. As I want to try some different bolts and bolts/patterns. I need the...

    Books on engine building or modification

    Thanks Mender! I will look up the books by "blair", and start making a list of other ones to buy, based off your suggestions. A lot of people take for granted all the information there is theses days. But I know a little reading can go a long way and hope to take advantage of it.

    Books on engine building or modification

    I mostly work on off-road motorcycles for professional racers. I've been building slightly modified engines for a while, but I'm always wanting to learn. That's my main area of interest. Although I do have a 70 el camino and chevelle that I work on, both big block engines. I wouldn't mind...

    Automotive Chevy cars won't start?

    I understand your idea of uneducated workers messing up the cars. But the uneducated ones are just busy workers, putting x part on over and over. The real problems come from bad design or mismanufactured parts. I really doubt these "not my job, lazy workers" are the reason for x brand of...

    HP gains from colder air

    If we did run a water/methanol injector. How much fluid do they normally consume?

    HP gains from colder air

    I will talk to the next racing event dean and see if it's illegal or not. We already use an aftermarket aluminium tank to have enough fuel to make it through the race. With a good design it could be done, but the fuel tank area is pretty cramped.

    HP gains from colder air

    The bike uses a throttle body with the injector built in. We can move the whole throttle body slightly, but because of rules we can't change the injector type.
